the mosque there. and, of course, muslims do not want us to burn the koran. the imam has agreed to move the mosque. we have agreed to cancel our event on saturday. and on saturday, i will be flying up there to meet with him. >> all right, all right. time-out. folks, you can't believe a word this guy is saying. he's been shooting from the hip for days now. now, right now, nbc news is reporteding that there is no deal with the new york imam to move the cultural center away from where it was proposed here in manhattan. what's infuriating, really infuriating about all of this is that this -- the world basically has been held hostage by this pastor jones, a small-time lunatic zealot. this nut has gotten the president of the united states, the state department, the pentagon, the fbi, general petraeus, hillary clinton and interpol. it doesn't get any higher than that, does it? we have to really put this in perspective. this is an unparalleled example in my opinion in the information age of how a fly on the wall can suck the air out of the room to the point where the president of the united sta

money that you've got. come on. you are making this too easy. that does it for us tonigh we will see you again tomorrow night. for us tonight. >>> there's lots to add to what you've seen on our show. "the ed show" is up next. good night. >>> good evening, americans. welcome to "the ed show." tonight from new york, these stories on the table. and hitting my hot buttons at this hour. breaking news, the psychopastor in florida says he's canceled his plan to burn the koran. but the story is far from over. he's claiming he's cut a deal to move the so-called ground zero mosque in new york. folks, you can't believe a word this guy says. my commentary on that, plus rapid fire response all coming up. >>> democrats, i want you to pay attention and listen carefully to how governor ed rendell of pennsylvania has been hammering the republicans. he just said we can't turn our country over to the "froot loops and crazies." i kind of love that kind of talk. he'll bring the straight talk here in the bottom of the hour. >>> and glenn beck and sarah palin are restoring dishonor in my opinion t
that every election is a choice. if you have to run against the ideal, if it's a referendum, every one of us will get beats. we'd have nobody in office because there's no such thing as the perfect public servant. the choices you make in politics are like the choices you make in life. you make the best available choice. >> that's an interesting insight into the obama's strategy. he talked about how what obama is doing is to try to draw mitch mcconnell and john boehner on to television where they aren't so good and expose them as part of the no team. part of a long interview we did today. part of an upcoming documentary. by the way, that was taped today at the clinton institute on american politics, university college dublin. one of the many institutes being set up by the former president. >>> james clyburn said if republicans win the house, they'll use subpoena power to try to delegitimize president obama. darrell issa said he was being paranoid and goofy. up next, we'll ask iss what what republicans are planning to do with the power that he will have in his hand. you're watching "hardball" f
you so much. keli goff. that does it for us. "hardball's" up right now. >>> all hail the coalition. let's play "hardball." obama-clich obama-clichbt. the best move he made was to forge a coalition with the other force in the democratic party, the clintons, naming hillary clinton was just the beginning. last week, she took the front line job. peace in the middle east. this week, bill clinton joined hands with obama touting him in advance of the midterm elections. could there be a stronger role for the clintons after the election? we've got arianna huffington to help with the alliance. is the quote still taboo? we're talking christine o'donnell. our friend bill mahr rebroadcast a clip of o'donnell from the show in which she said she once dabbled in witchcraft. what will the voters of delaware make of that? that said, extremist rhetoric was the official language this weekend. dale peterson said things like, president obama hates america. you know, the usual stuff. this hatred has gotten far out. so far, how the democrats going to fight with it. how about newt gingrich? he's out with t
was the official hand jomp as u.s. forces stepped back into a supporting and training role. >> ending this war is not only in iraq's interest, it's in our own. the united states has paid a huge price to put the future of iraq in the hands of its people. through this remarkable chapter and the history of the united states and iraq, we have met our responsibilities. now it's time to turn the page. >> william cohen served as defense secretary under president bill clinton and is now with the cohen group. mr. secretary k-we turn the page? >> well, the page has been turned in the sense that the combat mission is over, combat will continue. it's still a very volatile, dangerous region, and we're going to don't see more assaults launched against the iraqi people, against the 50,000 soldiers who remain there. the real question for me is what's going happen to the remaining 50,000, how will they be down sized in the coming year. what struck me about last night's speech was that the president talked about conditionality on the ground in afghanistan, in other words the reductions that are coming next summ
, and so the voter is putting the best possible face on their vote here, so why -- they tell us that the bush policies were unpopular. in fact, it is the second most unpopular attitude for a congressional candidate to have. >> so they are being optimistic, a rosy scenario of republicanism. >> correct. it's the same thing that barack obama benefited from in 2008. >> wow. >> people put the most positive -- independents thought he's going to be a moderate. liberals thought he would be the great liberal. they became the hope candidate and many ways this idea of a new republican congress, voters are being hopeful, even if they haven't seen any hard evidence to prove it otherwise. >> you know, chuck, it's like one of those old santa claus masks that used to be in the store windows that always seemed to be looking at you, you know, when you're walking by. that guy is with me. >> give me that toy. >> john heilemann, the same question to you. do you take the same view that when people, voters are saying, oh, they are not going back to their old ways. they have whole new republican approa
to run against the ideal, if it's a referendum, every one of us will get beats. nobody will get elected. we'd have nobody in office because there's no such thing as the perfect public servant. the choices you make in politics are like the choices you make in life. you look at the facts as best you can and you make the best available choice. >> that's part of a long interview that we did today for an upcoming documentary on the former president. >>> coming up congressman james clyburn said yesterday on "hardball" that if republicans win the house they'll use subpoena power to try to delegitimize president obama. republican congressman darrell issa called us and said that congressman clyburn was being, quote, paranoid. up next i'll ask issa what republicans are actually planning. you're watching "hardball" from dublin only on msnbc. , no. oh. but i did pick up your dry cleaning and had your shoes shined. well, i made you a reservation at the sushi place around the corner. well, in that case, i better get back to these invoices... which i'll do right after making your favorite pancakes. yo
it for us. "hardball's" up right now. >>> let's play har hard. good evening. i'm chuck todd in for chris matthews. today may be remembered as the day american politics jumped the shark. when steven colbert came to testify before congress about the plight of migrant farm workers, he did so in character. it's not clear whose reputation took a bigger hit today. >> as we've heard this morning, america's farms are far too depent on immigrant labor to pick our fruits and vegetables. the obvious answer is to stop eating fruits and vegetables and if you look at recent obesity statistics, many have already started. >> it didn't stop at capitol hill. harry reid and sharon engel supporters broke out into a full on brawl at a local christian school. plus, the republican pledge to america. what does it really mean? some say it's designed to get votes and change nothing. some on the left say it's nothing more than a smoke screen to disguise radical ideas. and the comeback kid with another comeback. bill clinton may be the go-to guy president obama needs to save him and his party. ask yourself this. ho
the house and senate in jeopardy? with us, charlie cook, editor of "the cook political report," erin burnett, anchor of msnbc's "street signs" and e.j. dionne columnist for "the washington post," and rich lowry, editor of "national review." f "national review." captions paid for by nbc-universal television >>> good morning. president obama will spend next week talking up his proposals to improve the economy and lower the 9.6 jobless rate. "the new york times" reporting this morning that in a speech in cleveland on wednesday, he will ask congress to permanent hoe extend a corporate tax credit for research and development. with the election season officially under way this labor day, the president must convince voters that democrats will offer the best prescription for turning the economy around and creating jobs. with us now from his home state of south carolina, republican senator lindsey graham. senator, welcome back to "meet the press." >> thank you. good morning. >> i want to start on the economy. the president reacting to the latest jobs numbers in the rose garden on friday offered this
>>> this hour, what is the democrats' game plan? dnc chairman, governor tim kaine, joins us. >>> plus, a preacher's plan to burn the koran sparks anti-american protests overseas. well, now the top u.s. commander in afghanistan is sounding the alarm. >>> good day, everybody. i'm norah o'donnell in today for andrea mitchell. and 56 days to go until election day and a new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll shows republicans in a very healthy position for big congressional wins, unless democrats can energize the base. and of course, the major sticking point, the economy. let's get right to democratic pollster, peter hart, who helped conduct the poll for nbc and "the wall street journal." peter, god to the see you. let's first start about the mood of this country, on the wrong track now. 61% of americans concerned about where this country is heading. that is worse than the past two cycles when, of course, party controlled change in congress. what does that tell us? >> people are bleak. it's dark, and they're negative. and what it tells us more than anything else is there isn't c
-- >> stephanie, great to have you with us tonight. >>> tonight our text survey question, i asked you, do you think that the tea party shares your values? 8% said of you said yes. 92% of you said, no. have a great weekend. that's "the ed show." chris matthews and "hardball" is next. see you monday. >>> palin gives iowa a try. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews, down in washington, leading off tonight, the senator from delaware. that's right. the prominence of christine odon thel week, tells you how much the republican party has changed. at least for now. the grand ole party is history. this week's primary voting especially in delaware has changed the calculus. less for this november than for november 2012. if you're a classic lineup, well, if you're a classic lineup the endorsement's big money establishment republican like mitt romney, you've had a very bad week. who had a good week? the candidate who wasn't in today's obama-bashing viewers values summit here in washington, sarah palin. this is her parent now. the only question is what she wants to do herself, run or
to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. for the next hour in which we shall celebrate the launch of lawrence o'donnell's new show which is tonight right after this hour. we shall celebrate the arrival of our new desk which inexplicably has something to do with the start of lawrence's new show with you i'm not sure what. i'm very excite body my new desk. we shall also celebrate the return of barack hussein obama. he is back in talking points just in case any republicans previous efforts to convince you he is secretly foreign did not work on you, they're going to give it one more shot. that's all to come over the course of the hour. >>> but we begin tonight by putting a giant asterisk on the well worn political truism that all politics is local. the big decision democrats had to make about this year's elections was whether or not they would try to run this year's elections as a national campaign, whether they were going to try to run as democrats versus republicans or whether they were going to try to block out everything happening at the national level and, instead, hop
news deputy political director mark murray who joins us live from washington. let's break down what these results mean beginning in delaware. it was a huge tea party win, obviously. the question is, obviously, what will happen in the midterm? >> you know, richard, we just don't know right now. certainly the tea party has given republicans a jolt of enthusiasm and energy even in delaware. honestly, that's the republican party's biggest advantage heading into the midterm electrics. they're the ones who have the enthusiasm and the democrats don't. on the other hand, the tea party has given democrats an advantage in contests like delaware and kentucky and nevada where it's their candidates, the democratic candidates probably wouldn't have a chance to win or even be the favorites without the tea party candidates there. in delaware, for example, chris kuntz goes in as the fro front-runner in this contest. castle would have been the front-runner had he won. >> hey, mark, let's go to new york where we saw paladino come away with the winner there. >> that was just a shock. rick lazio has bee

"the daily rundown" starts now. >>> this is a recruitful bonanza for al qaeda. >> the pressure building. the president weighs in on that florida pastor's plan to burn the koran. >>> 54 days before the critical midterm elections. why's the chairman of the republican party in guam? >>> get this. football great tom brady involved in what's described as a serious car accident in boston this morning. >>> it's thursday, september 9th, 2010. i'm chuck todd. savannah guthrie is on assignment. brady's accident occurred hours ago. but first, let's get to the rundown. >>> president obama came out swinging in cleveland defending the presidency and ramping up criticism of the man who would be speaker and potentially his chief adder is vary john boehner. athna jones on duty for us at the white house this morning. so, trying to find somebody to run agains
the problems of people like us, now this number is down to 50%. now, that is really a huge, huge decline and he needs to make the american people believe that he really connects with where they're at right now. >> do you think he started today -- i watched the whole thing. howard first and then arianna. i've got a commentary in this show. i think that it's great to listen to people who are skeptical. a lot of these business-type guys pretty smart guys up there, shrewd guys. we're grilling him today and he was taking it. >> yeah, he can handle it and i think that's good. the more he's out there talking to people who understand the economic situation -- >> and don't like him. >> and even if they don't like him, fine. >> i love it. >> he's perfectly capable of handling all of that stuff. he's good at it. he's a lawyer. he's an empathetic guy but he's not always in the situation where he can show. >> why do they keep setting him up with those goof ball ringers? what's it like to be great? do you ever get tired of people not understanding your motives? arianna, i hate to be skeptical. well, i am ske
political career advancement. tells you all you need to know. that does it for us tonit. we will see you again tomorrow night. >>> new blood. let's play "hardball." >> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. leading off tonight, shakeup. mayor daley of chicago started the chain reaction. he's not running for re-election. rahm emanuel, the president's chief of staff, wants his job. the announcement from chicago comes as president obama faced the worst poll numbers ever in our latest nbc news/purge poll. this is the moment when a tough hardball manager makes his move. this is the time when the general manager, in this case the president, does what he sees more than anybody needs to be done, the team's losing. he can still salvage the season. shakeup time, big time. i recommend he get hillary clinton in as his chief of defense to toughen up the security and move middle east talks to a higher level and then brings in a real heavyweight to run the white house, to serve as the government's chief operating officer. how about new york mayor michael bloomberg? how about colin
, not a run. i'm not getting on the train to da if there's running. >> there will be no running from us. we got a golf cart. i got, like, those tony soprano sweats, velour and we'll be smoking. we're in new york, we have msnbc and "time" magazine analyst laura halprin. chris jansing and in washington, d.c., nbc political analyst pat buchanan. i don't know if pat is lathered up by what happened last night. pat, we'll get to you in a minute. i was awakened though in the middle of the night by a three-alarm -- not tweet, a three-alarm column by mark halprin, framing last night in opinion pox lip tick terms for the republican party. >> so apocalyptic. republicans were taking a senate seat, there was a building block to get back to the senate majority. it's gone barring some truly unforeseeable development. absolute binary switch. republicans now almost impossible to come up with a way they get the ten-seat majority. in the longer term it shows the republican party has a huge problem. they've benefit friday the tea party movement so far. they'll benefit in november but maybe having a huge, huge
'm ann curry. for all of us here, good night. >> this sunday, labor day weekend and the official kickoff to this fall's midterm campaign. can the white house and democrats do anything to improve the economy before november? what are the costs and the benefits of america's long wars in iraq and afghanistan? my news maker guest this morning, republican senator from south carolina, lindsey graham. and david plouffe, the man behind barack obama's successful run for the white house and author of the "the audacity to win" book. and then it's our political roundtable weighing in on the hottest races of the fall campaign. how bad will it be for the democrats? is the party's hold on both the house and senate in jeopardy? with us, charlie cook, editor of "the cook political report," erin burnett, anchor of msnbc's "street signs" and e.j. dionne from "the washington post" and rich lowry, editor of "national review." captions paid for by nbc-universal television >>> good morning. president obama will spend next week talking up his proposals to improve the economy and lower the 9.6 jobless rate. "the
we'll see you again tomorrow night. i'm chris math use up in new york. bill clinton pitching coach, former president clinton who outsmarted republicans who tried to make him a one-termer has some political advice for president obama. he said there's still time to for obama to hold off for republican tidal wave but he says the only way to stop that republican wave is to tell voters not to let their disappointment cloud their judgment that obama's got plain to voters that our economy is improving faster than most of the worlds. that he's got to be optimistic about the future of this country and make the argument about republican ideas being no good. he's also got to nationalize the midterms in 1994. that's the advice today. and the president has to ask for two more years to get the job done. can this president pull off a popularity comeback in the way bill clinton did? that's our top story. plus, house republicans unveil their pledge to america today and it could be the biggest cover-up since watergate. it showcases all the predictable soft sell proposals but goes radio silent on the
on over an hour. the term wide ranging is going to be used a lot. >> how about long-winded. >> we had a ton of topics, the first focused on the economy, one or two on the pastor, and more on the growing phobia with islam around the country. i would say he was most passionate at the end when he made a case for the right and religious freedom and for the rights of muslim americans to have the same rights as everyone else in the country. the passion he showed there was probably greater than he answered on any other question. frankly it's interesting. he mixed it. it was passionate and mixed in with patriotism in a way even some of his critics on this issue will say it was a very eloquent answer to say the least. >> in contrast to that, let's see what his passion, quote, unquote, was, when talking about stimulus and job growth. let's watch. if you want the same kind of skewed policies that led us to this crisis, republicans are ready to offer those. if you want policies that are moving us out, even though you're frustrated, change isn't happening as fast as you would like, then i think de
about jimmy carter that seems to emerge every few years that explain to us why he was beaten so soundly in 1980? >> well, he feels, i think it's safe to say, unappreciat unappreciated -- not underappreciated, unappreciated. as we all know, you don't get to be president by having a deficit of grandosty. right, that's not a qualification for the job. all of these guys have that to some degree or another. some hide it better than others. i think as president carter gets older, he hides it not at all. >> so you're saying, not as as well as others? >> not at all. >> let's put the whole story aut there, for what it's worth. by the way, in washington this morning -- >> begins in plains. >> we have with us, a proposal historian, michael. he said, basically, after these comments aired yesterday, because, you know, president carter is on a media blitz for his book, "white house diary." he says this, what i meant was for 27 years, any carter center has provided me with superior opportunities to do good. >> if we can just say, that is the worst clarification -- >> i'm not going to defend that argum
. this is a huge story out west. so we will keep our monitors on the video coming in to us and the live pictures and we will dip back in and out "morning joe" this morning. again, a huge explosion ripping through a san francisco neighborhood late yesterday. the fire still raging at this hour. >>> good morning, it is friday, september 10th. i'm mika brzezinski. joe is off this morning but willie is taking care of mommy this morning. with us on the set is all of these boys. national political correspondent for new york magazine, john heilemann been here for three days. >> i haven't left. i slept here. >> awkward. at some point, he'll go. but he is the co-author of "game change." donnie deutsche is here. >> hello, darling. >> you look okay. >> that -- a pause is better than an insult. it's donnie deutsche is here, that scum or something like that. >> it's all about you, donnie? everything that i do, he thinks it might just be about me somehow. it might have been an insult which really means she likes me. i like that one. >> get to the insults. >> thank you for that. >> donnie looks sharp. he either
with washington. let us not forget that the tea party stands for taxed enough already. i think people are very upset with the size of government and they're upset with the spending going on and upset with the direction that the country is heading in. >> the republicans didn't recognize that. it didn't take, you know a political genius to figure out that people were mad as hell and weren't going to take it any more. >> yes, ychris, i do. the republican establishment in washington, yes, i do believe they were taken off stream and i think a lot of the leaders here very comfortable in washington and don't get back to their districts as much and don't travel around the country as much. i've heard, i've seen it and it's not a shock to me. it's a shock to a lot of the people in the building behind me. >> do you feel like you were delivered this huge gift? >> i am not going to count any chickens before they're hatched because i learned a dramatic lesson during the presidential primary in 2008 the voters will have their say and all the predictions can kind of get thrown out the window. ron is doing a v
'd like you to help us with some perspectives. the numbers are better than expected, but, as i understand, the gains were driven by apartment building and is this good news, bad news or something in between? >> a lot of numbers in between this. is it good news? look, anything that goes up is good news in this economy. we also have to put it into the perspective of how low we were from housing starts off of historic peaks to historic troughs. looking at that 10% number. the single rise in housing starts was good. we're seeing some increase although you have to wonder why if there's so much inventory on the market already. we came off that homebuyer tax market and we saw this huge drop in new home sales because of the tax credit, but, now, we'll start to see people come back into the market as the housing market recovers and we better be ready with some new construction to offer them. that's probably what they're thinking going into that single family housing number. apartment buildings which were up 32% month to month. why is that? because the homeownership rate is actually dropping. more
congress. i appreciate you joining us today. >> this is the first step towards what would be changed. >> congressman mack thorn berry, appreciate it. >>> and president obama addresses it u.n. general assembly calling on global leaders to support the path of peace and also support the two-state solution in the mideast. we tco-host of the daily rundown joins us in new york because that's where the president is. and savannah, the president making a pledge today when it comes to mideast peace and palestine. >> that's what stood out with this speech. long speech, wide ranging. a progress report. the push on middle east piece. israel and palestine. it's about to be tested severely with question if israel would continue the moratorium on settlement building not looking as though it's likely to do that. the u.s. is hoping that israel would do that and create an atmosphere that's conducive to peace. and he really addressed not only the israelis and the palestines but the other arab leaders saying you've got to invest yourself in peace. you have to lay out a vision on how things could change i
but can you keep this part and that part and that other part and why the republicans are using a slogan repel and replace. they are saying we will seep kooep some of the things but haven't figured out what parts they will keep and the trick it's not easy to have the popular provisions without some of the unpopular provisions. for instance you prohibit bans on coverage for people with preexisting conditions. you have to have an individual mandate to make sure that the costs don't blow up and get out of control and they haven't done, i think, yet the hard work of saying how are we going to do this? how are we going to keep parts of the people and get rid of the parts that people don't like? that is the hard work of governing and their document is not really being honest about that right now. >> good to see you, michael. >> great to see you. thank you. >>> democrats have countered this house republican pledge to america with their own promise. refusing to release their own agenda. vowing, instead, to run on their legislative record. democrats, though, are calling the republicans commitment
"hardball." >>> good evening, i'm chris math use in washington. leading off, obama/clinton. the o.c. the best political mooch president obama made in his presidency even before he was president was to forge a lincolnesque coalition with the other force in the democratic party, the clintons, naming hillary clinton as secretary of state was just the beginning. last week, she took the front line job in bringing about what could be obama's greatest presidential achievement, peace in the middle east. this week president clinton joined hands was to forge a coalition with the other force in the democratic party, we have arianna huffington. is the quote still taboo? we're talking christine o'donnell. our friend bill mahr rebroadcast a clip of o'donnell from the show in which o'donnell said she dabbled with witchcraft and between the a date of satanic altar. what will the voters of delaware make of that? republican dale peterson of alabama said things like president obama hates america. you know, the usual stuff. this unthinking hate rested president by right wingers and tea partiers has g
the u.s. military as it gave control officially to iraqis and stepped back into the supporting role. but biden told "today" show's matt lauer it doesn't mean the u.s. forces are now out of the fight. >> we still have 50,000 troops in place who can shoot straight, who are totally capable of combat if that became necessary in the interim. >> well, the president is now making a quick pivot to the next foreign policy challenge. it is a big one. posting the first big face to face talks between israeli and palestinian leaders in two years. mike baa caro is joining us here with the latest. >> reporter: peace between the israelis and arabs is a goal that has frustrated the presidents since 1947, but this is the scene of one in 1979 where jimmy carter and anwar sat here on the front of the white house lawn. and today george mitchell is telling reporters that there's a window of opportunity now for a two-state solution between the israelis and the palestinians. the first direct talks in almost two years. the first thing on the table is some short-term business. that settlement moratorium on t
do in the general election? i love election years. that does it for us tonight. keith olbermann starts right now. that does it for us. good night. >>> which of these stories will you be talking about tomorrow. the midterms and the party of the rich versus the party of everybody else? all hell breaks loose in the gop when john boehner hints he might vote for tax cuts that don't include tax cuts for the top 2%. >> the only option i have is to vote for some of those tax reductions, i'll vote for them. >> john has had to walk that back so far that the gop now says it will vote against, might even filibuster against tax cuts for the poor, middle class, and slightly well off if there aren't also cuts for daddy warbucks. and they're even talking about another government shutdown if they take the house. and, by the way, the federal deficit under the first full fiscal year is down. it's down by 8%. the federal deficit is down by 8%. it would seem as if you could make enough out of this and the tax cuts for the rich to save the midterms. we'll ask obama campaign manager david plum. newt g
a different path. so the voter is putting the best possible face on their vote here they tell us the bush policies were unpopular. the second most unpopular atrabt for a congressional candidate to have. it's the same thing barack obama benefitted from in 2008. well, he's going to be a moderate. liberals thought he would be the great liberal. they became sort of -- they became the hope candidate in many ways. even if they haven't seen hard evidence to prove otherwise. >> it's like an old santa claus mask that always seemed to be looking at you when you're walking by. he's with me. that guy is with me. i want that. john heilemann, do you take the same view? when voters are saying they're not going back to their old way, they have a new approach. less spending, less taxes the real conservative stuff, the gold. >> i think another piece of the polling in the nbc poll that talked about how when people were asked directly are you voting against president obama or voting for the republicans? more of them said they were in favor of the republicans. they were saying this is a positive affirmative v
